I feel pretty…

On days that I am lacking motivation and self confidence I practice self love. I put on a nice dress (because it’s the easiest way to put an outfit together lol). Then I put some makeup on, not because I feel like I need makeup to be beautiful, because I want to do something out…

My thoughts…

My life is far from perfect. I suffer from insecurities and self doubt. Maintaining a positive lifestyle is easier said than done. It requires every ounce on my being sometimes.

“Dealing” with my significant other…
